Created Byhand - Watercolor Backgrounds



Watercolor backgrounds are the challenge this week on Created Byhand. For this background I used the checkerboard corner stamp from Quietfire Design and Lyra watercolor crayons. I colored the stamp with the crayon, spritzed it with water and stamped it on the white cardstock... resprayed and stamped again, repeating until the color was gone... cleaned the stamp and repeated with another color. After the background was done I stamped the face collage image with Versamark ink and embossed with detail black...used a crayon on the eyes and blended with a damp brush. The quote (Quietfire Design) is stamped onto vellum with VersaMagic midnight black.
